Happy Labor Day! I hope everyone got some much needed relaxation in this weekend, even if you had to work (I feel you). Today I’m at the office having a quiet day with Meg. Even though we’re working, today seems kind of…chill. Maybe because I came in at 2? Sorry Meg.
Just wanted to do a little update because I am so excited for my second prenatal appointment tomorrow. I’m at just about 16 weeks, and am hoping they’re going to be able to tell us ye olde gender of our child. Not getting my hopes up (I know it’s early), but one can wish.
Overall I’ve been feeling pretty good. Little tinges of discomfort in my sides here and there, I’m more tired than usual (I think I spent half of this weekend sleeping) and I am snacking constantly. I’ve found that’s what works best for me to keep feeling a-ok most of the time. I read yesterday that our child’s eyelids are no longer fused shut as of this week, and that just really struck me. It’s beginning to feel more and more real.
But enough about baby, this is a “style” blog, after all (whatever that means). I finally bit the bullet and bought this dress on Friday. I’ve been wearing Megan’s quite a bit (she owns the black version) and I am SO HAPPY I did. The material is soft and stretchy, and not opaque at all and I can proudly report that you can wear a normal bra with it. I thought maybe it would show through the back but it doesn’t at all. I’m looking forward to wearing this a lot in the coming months ahead in my quest to purchase no actual “maternity” clothing. I think it’s pleated just enough to lay comfortably over my expanding waistline and the seam at the waist sits kind of high…so bring on the tights and cardigans to pair with this puppy.
If you read this before Tuesday, snag this style at Hello Holiday for 25% off by using code ‘JADE‘ or ‘BLACK‘ to purchase each respective hue. Cross my heart, stick a needle in my eye (none of that “hope to die” crap) you won’t regret this purchase.
